Client Love Letters

I am forever so grateful for my clients.  You are literally the reason why I still do what I do.  Thank you.


Love Jenny & Ryan

The services that Nomo, from Simply Sweet photography provided my family, will be treasured forever.  

My husband and I renewed our vows this past July 2015, for our 10 year anniversary.  We treated this vow renewal like a second wedding, since we were young for our first.  We thought that this was our chance to do a few things differently! I had originally been very disappointed with my first wedding photos, and being that I am a photographer myself, I knew that this time had to be different.

I found Nomo online, and instantly fell in love with her work.  Her photos were timeless, soft, and she has an incredible talent for capturing the love between two people.  Not only is her work sensational, but her prices are incredible.  Although I truly believe she is worth much, much more. 

On the day of the renewal, Nomo was timely, professional, and pleasant to everyone.  My daughter especially fell in love with her.  When we received our photos, my husband and I were both surprised how fast she got them finished!!  We had woken up around 2:30 in the morning and saw the email from her, and we both knew we couldn't wait until morning to take a look.  We sat in bed, and viewed one amazing photo after another.  We were both in tears, seeing the beauty that she had captured in our family and guests.  

We are forever grateful for the photos that Simply Sweet photography captured for us.  Thanks to her talents, we have been able to relive our special day, over and over again.  We have, and will continue to, recommend Nomo to friends, family, and anyone that we meet.  

Love Stephanie & Ryan

Firstly, I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY by Nomo! We had Nomo as our destination photographer last weekend in Cabo at the Hyatt Ziva. If there’s one thing to really think about when getting married it’s the photos you are going to keep and cherish together forever. I’ve asked Nomo to slowly send me the photos one by one because I get so emotional on how beautifully she captured the LOVE Ryan and I have for each other. Endless smiles, laughs and tears- it was truly the best day of of my life! And I can’t believe how excellent she was with direction and her professionalism was something our entire wedding party noticed. You know you have an amazing photographer if your family and friends plan on booking her for their big days! Again, we cannot THANK YOU enough Nomo for our dreamy, whimsical- fairytale like wedding photos!! -Love Stephanie and Ryan Battagello



Love Dave & Seleyna

Searching for a wedding photographer was not an easy task, so when I saw Nomos photos I just knew she was the perfect fit.  My husband and I were very nervous for our engagement shoot having no experience with professional photos.  Nomo was so kind, patient, soft spoken and professional she made us feel so comfortable.  We love our animals and conveniently so does Nomo, we had our two dogs and horse included in the photos which was challenging at times...but you would never know by looking at the photos we were absolutely blown away!

Our wedding day happened to be one of the stormiest days In years... Rain, wind, earthquakes you name it we had it. The stress was high and Nomo made everything feel controlled, easy, and smooth. She works so hard and is so talented at what she does... And it shows in her photos.  Again you would never know by looking at the photos what crazy weather we actually had!!!  We are eternally grateful for our amazing life long memories captured by Nomo.

When we were searching for a wedding photographer, we stumbled upon Simply Sweet Photography and fell in love with Nomo's work. It got even better when we met her in person. She was incredibly friendly and warm and we instantly felt as if we had always been friends. We both knew that we had found our photographer. When we took our engagement photos, what started as us being awkward and camera shy turned into a fun day full of laughter and wishing that our session was longer!

On our wedding day, Nomo was so professional and organized and knew exactly where to take photos and how to capture our special moments. Our photos are simply stunning and really showcases her artistic eye and attention to detail. We have received so many compliments on our photos from family and friends.

Thank you Nomo for capturing our memories so beautifully!



Love Krista & Rob

For Rob and I, there was no better investment to our wedding day than to hire Nomo Akisawa as our professional photographer. She is magic!

Her style captures light so gently and with an indisputable ease of elegance. Her creative eye found each detail of our looks that we loved so much, and her editing showcased these details with class. She ensured we had ample pictures of our sweet baby girl to treasure, while candidly catching the sneak peak moments of love between Rob and I. She captured our guests looking their finest while remaining unobtrusive to the flow of our day and ongoing conversations. In essence, Nomo felt like a guest, a friend, celebrating our happiest day and kindly recording the moments for us through her lens. 

Nomo’s love for her art and true excitement at our wedding celebration was evident, and when we sat down to look at the pictures for the first time, we were amazed at how each shot reflected another well-captured moment of our day. We are ever so grateful. Thank you, Nomo.

Love Caroline & David

We were referred by a friend of mine on Facebook to use Nomo for our wedding photographer. We looked at her website and was very impressed by her photography skills and really liked her style.

Nomo was very quick at getting back to us after we inquired about her services and shortly after some emails back and forth, we met Nomo at our home. She didn't hesitate to drive all the way from Maple Ridge to Richmond just to meet us. Nomo is very easy to talk to, friendly, easy going, and down to earth. 

She made us feel comfortable under the camera, especially during our engagement photo shoot. It was raining that day unfortunately, but using umbrellas, she still agreed and continued to take our photos and they turned out amazing! 

David and I were at times, camera shy, or didn't know what to do, but Nomo guided us very naturally to tell us where to stand and how to pose, place our hands, heads, and relax. She put in extra time just to get the location and shots that we wanted to have as well. 

On our wedding day, Nomo and her 2nd shooter dedicated a hot sunny day to shoot our wedding ceremony and formals, and took many beautiful photos that we will cherish for life. We greatly appreciate the extra time Nomo put in during our Reception as well.
We definitely recommend Nomo for other couples to use for their engagement and wedding photos.  She has talent, drive, dedication and the potential to become a famous photographer if she hasn't already!



Love Brandi & Josh

Nomo is amazing, not only as a photographer (obviously!) but as a person as well.  The first time we met her was the day we got our engagement photos done.  It was our first photo shoot of any type so we didn't know what to expect and if it would be awkward or not. She made us feel incredibly comfortable and gave such good direction.  It was a breeze!  She made everything so easy.  When we got our photos back we were blown away!  So were all our family and friends.  We decided right away we had to have her for our Jamaica wedding, and we are so happy she could be apart of the best day of our lives.  She did the best job, everyone had so much fun and once again, we were blown away by the photos when we got them (which she got back to us so quick!).  We definitely recommend her to everyone!  You won't regret it.  I know in the future we will definitely book with her for more shoots.

Love Marielle & Josh

Nomo was our photographer for our wedding on Aug 16,2014. . Nomo was referred to me by a friend of mine and I am so glad I chose to have her as my photographer. Her website proves how unique and incredible her work really is. She is very open and understanding to any of our suggestions and she works around what you want which is something I really admired about her. She has the sweetest and kindest personality and I found that she cared alot about us and wanted the best on our wedding day. She communicated well with me; whether it was first thing in the morning or late in the evening; she never left me hanging. I felt at ease during my wedding knowing she was there, capturing all the important and special moments that meant everything to me. I am beyond happy with the quailty of the pictures and I can't wait to print them out and put them in my wedding album. I also loved how she provided all the pictures in a USB which made it so much easier for me to pick and choose. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional, talented and super friendly photographer.



Love Tim & Julia

After spending countless weeks seeking a wedding photographer, my wife and I just had to meet with Nomo after seeing her wedding pictures on-line. Without any referrals, we immediately felt comfortable entrusting her with preserving our special day with her artistic vision. Not only was she flexible with our custom package, but she was intent on listening to what we wanted from our photos and experience. Throughout the entire process, Nomo kept us updated and was incredibly responsive with returning e-mails. While its a small professional gesture, it goes a long way when you're in the midst of planning a wedding. She also took extra steps and went above and beyond the call of duty with making sure we got what we wanted. This lady works hard, pays attention to customer satisfaction, and as a result, we can tell she loves what she does with a passion. Overall, we were incredibly pleased and satisfied with her craft. She nailed it and captured all the sweetest little moments. If Nomo isn't already there, she is definitely on her way up to be a presence in the wedding photography industry. In the end, my advice is simple, take the opportunity to meet with her, you won't be disappointed.


Love Amy & Clayton

Nomo is such a talented photographer; she was able to capture all the perfect moments on our wedding day! She is so friendly and sincere; Clayton and I were so comfortable with her for our engagement and wedding shots. Our engagement photos from her one-hour session turned out way nicer than the photos we got from a full day session with a family friend. We couldn’t be happier with both of our engagement photos and wedding photos. Nomo was really able to capture what we have envisioned for; our stunning photos are eternal reflections of our joy, our love and the beauty of our special day!

love Angela

I just wanted to recommended Simply Sweet Photography by Nomo Akisawa for boudoir. I spent hours researching different boudoir photographers in Vancouver and finally chose Nomo after finding her Instagram. I wanted elegant and tasteful photos. Nomo did not disappoint. Her photos are straight out a magazine and she does all of her incredible editing herself. There are photographers out there who charge an insane amount and it's not the quality of Nomos work. So happy!

Nomo did a fab job taking our families Christmas pics! Will be using her again next year for sure ! There are so many pics I love that I can't decide so I am making two Christmas cards lol. Love the fact that she listens to her clients and that she is so responsive via text, phone call or whatever ( especially for a new mom who doesn't have much time ). She also worked with inspiration photos adding her professional opinion and came to our home to take the pics . Honestly her work is the best but above all I appreciate the attitude and customer service which is hard to find .


Love Liting Chan

I have recently worked with Nomo at a style shoot where we provided draping and vinyl dance floor wrap. Honestly, I have never been a huge fan of style shoot. HOWEVER, the pictures Nomo has taken total changed my prospective. Going through the pictures she has been taken totally blew my mind away!! They are simply WOW WOW WOW! What is better than her skill, are her communication and humble attitude. Since we setup our part the day prior the style shoot, and we never met her in person. We knew the style shoot was chosen Wedlux by she tagging us. And we reached out to thank her. She immediately provided us the rest of the pictures. At the wedding industry, talent people are easy to find, but talent AND classy people, not so easy. thank you Nomo, for your amazing work. You made magic happen!!!

Love Angela & Kevin

Nomo is one of the best photographers out there!! The combination of her talent, her vision, and her personality make her an unforgettable photographer and person!!! I was lucky enough to book her for my destination wedding in Veradero, Cuba in March 2015. We received the MOST AMAZING photos; better than I could even dream!! Not only is she super talented; but she is also such a sweet person. She really takes the time to get to know you and what your vision is for your wedding. We talked back and forth for months prior to the wedding. Nomo was always quick to reply and gave great input for photo ideas on location. I would book Nomo again in a heartbeat. Because I know that she would capture everything, just right. Her work is perfection!!! ♡♡♡
